Happy 50th to Dave Oakes!

Posted on 26 May 2020

Many happy returns to Powelectrics MD, Dave Oakes, who has just celebrated his 50th birthday!

Here at Powelectrics, we love a good celebration! Obviously, this year is a little different! 

The team met up remotely to sing happy birthday, present Dave with his card and voucher and enjoy a 'Dave' themed quiz!

Dave was supposed to spend this week on a cycling trip in Sicily .... however the Bank Holiday provided him with gorgeous weather for a two-wheeled jaunt nearer to home!

"We're all adapting to unprecedented circumstances and finding new ways to do things!

If nothing else, my birthday has shown how important remote communication has become to us all ...woven into the fabric of our everyday lives!

Between Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, Moonpig and Amazon, I've had a great celebration with colleagues, friends and family ... thankyou everyone!!! Even my older relatives have embraced remote connectivity in a way I couldn't have imagined a year ago!

It seems that the Internet of Things & the ability to communicate and control processes from wherever you happen to be, is great news for birthdays as well as business ... though it will definitely be fantastic when we can all to get together again in person!"
